Long Tailed Tit just departing the top of a feeding station
A Field Fare - one of the few that would stop still long enough to have it's picture taken.

A red kite - I was disappointed that my Kite pics didn't have more definition until Chief pointed out the Lens I was using was never going to give me that sort of definition at these ranges.
Before too long it was time for Chief and I to say our good byes and I was pretty exhausted due to the very late night and us cramming in as much as possible.
Monday though I spent the evening being a grown up. I was asked to see if I would like to fill a vacancy on our Parish Council. For those outside the UK the majority of Parishes in England have local councils which consult on thing that go on in that Parish. Issues that effect the local community like road condition, parking, public spaces, public amenities, planning etc. Whilst the Parish council has limited powers, they do consult and work with the bodies that do, to act in the best interests of the Parish and community. It has always felt to me like something that grown ups do. Not people like me. Councils probably need younger people (even younger than me) but it's the sort of thing you associate with older people, much older than me anyway! The plan was I'd go along to the meeting - see what went on then consider joining. What actually happened was within minutes of the meeting the Chairman proposed me, someone seconded the co-option and I became a parish councillor!
Some of the stuff I need to read and forms regarding declarations of interest.
Today, is Shrove Tuesday so I did the pancake thing. Not my best ever pancakes and not eaten with anything more exciting than sugar and lemon.
So the bad news is no more sewing since my last post. The good news is I've thought of a give away for you all. So hopefully it won't be too long until I can blog about that!
